will be housed in the pentagon and, thus, providing the ability under law to be more transparent. >> go ahead, michael. >> that still doesn't answer the underlying question. that's all nice bureaucratic organization of the charts, but it still doesn't answer the underlying -- >> i call it the u.s. law. >> that too, but you're not a lawyer. again, the point is how does the government respond to the question of killing united states cities abroad through drones, how does the drone program in its implementation more broadly speaking apply to u.s. citizens, which as you've pointed out, alex, the question answered was a little bit nebulous. that's the legitimate point we need to get to. i get what you're saying about how the cia should handle this and the defense department handle that, but the role of the u.s. government in sponsoring a program in which the lives of a u.s. citizen is a question mark in its engagement of foreign policy or national security is a legitimate question. >> just one thing to be clear, this was not a policy that started in january of 2009, right? i know you know that. >>
